So the poor have hope, and injustice shuts its mouth.
He caused all who held them captive to show them mercy.
When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone's way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
but the official told Daniel, "I am afraid of my lord the king, who has assigned your food and drink. Why should he see you looking worse than the other young men your age? The king would then have my head because of you."
